Hi!
 
Got my self a 1977 mini 1000 last fall.
Previous owner knew very little about the car, but said it was incredibly fast. Went to Harstad and tried the car, the first impression was one absolute no considering how the car looked. but after a test i had to have it, something so funny that this little thing I've never driven, the owner was right, it was incrediblyfast!
The car needed a lot of work, but everything worked, so I loaded the car on the trailer and took it home with me :)
Until now I have removed all of stickers that were on the car, polished up, changed various parts, mounted spacers, steering wheel lowering bracket, Luisi steeringwheel, carbon foil on dashboard, cooper grille and various upgrades.
 
 
These are the facts about the car that I've found so far:
 

- 1380cc

- Omega op110 73.5 pistons

- Kent 276

- Ported topp

- Bigger valves

- Double valvesprings

- Lightened flywheel

- Balanced conrods

- HIF44 Carburetor

- Electric fuelpump on switch

- Header and big exhaust

- ++++

 
 
Now I have taken out engine / gearbox, i maybe have to overhaul gearbox when Idler gear bearing is poor. So when it is done the engine / gearbox is getting paint, enginebay painting, then bodywork taken after that. Long shopping list is set up, this will be fun!
 
images from I got the car and until now, updates will come! :)

Nice work in the front footwell. Looks very clean. I noticed the bracket for the tachometer in front of the driver on the steering column cowl. Would you mind sending me a close up of the mounting arrangement, it would be something I would like to consider on my car. cheers.

It actually does look quite neat in the middle like that. Just a question though cause you looks like the same housing and mount. Was it attached with the same two screws through the plastic steering column cowling?

Does it hold well with the double sided tape? I would imagine the vibrations would be annoying. That said it is better than damaging the nice top dash rail.

Then the solution is to not remove it  :D
